Hey y'all! Welcome to the 'Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking' Special Thanks, blog hop!!! You should have arrived from Libby Hickson's blog.
I certainly made a card, but before I get to that, I want to share with you how Paper Crafts & Scrapbook had changed my life...(I know there's lots of hopping to do, so I'm gonna try it keep it short.)
I had always been of fan of PC&S (or just Paper Crafts, when I started reading them). Looking through the magazines always inspired me. Though, I did always question, could I be that good at this card making thing?...
At some point I finally worked up enough courage to try submitting cards. Though none ever got chosen, it never detoured me from still following my passion. Then, I saw this
Okay, so back to being my third time trying for Stamping Royalty. Well, sit down, because I won on my third time trying!!! :) Yep. I actually won! I couldn't believe it! Talk about a happy dance! My husband had no clue what the heck just happened, let alone what I was doing! lol And the news came right before my birthday...talk about a present! :) After taking it all in, I realized that my dream was no longer a dream, but a reality.
So, then we flash forward 2 years later and seeing the Stamping Royalty contest again, I thought I'd give it go. Well...What would the chances be, that I could win Stamping Royalty twice?!...Apparently, it is possible. ;) And that my friends, is why you should never let anything stop you. Don't second guess yourself, just go for it!
Through all the ups and downs, of submitting cards over and over again,
In return I thank you, PC&S. Thank you for everything!!! You have no idea how much you have touched me...know, you will always have a soft spot in my heart. And perhaps at times, I'll have to rock those crowns!?! ;)
Wherever the road leads, enjoy your journey!
Okay, so maybe that wasn't a short post?... ;) Now, you'll want to head on over to Yoosun Hur's blog!
Thanks for stopping on by!
